When we introduced drinking jars, we had no idea how popular they would become! However, it turns out that people love finding interesting new ways to serve drinks. This holiday season, use drinking jars for cocktails.
Jars for cocktails at Wares of Knutsford
There’s a great range of drinking jars available at Wares of Knutsford now, plus some cute accessories. The range starts with 400ml handled jars by Kilner in clear, blue, green and pink glass and available in packs of three, six and 12. You can buy flower lids to fit these jars separately, or buy a nine piece mug and straw set. You can also buy Mason drinking jars in two sizes: 450ml and 630ml, and in three varieties: without lids, with solid lids in gold or red gingham, or including silver lids with a hole cut for a straw. The jars can be bought in packs of six, 12, 24 or 48.
Handled drinking jars for cocktails make lovely Christmas gifts and are ideal for taking on picnics. All of our handled jars are made of quality, heavy duty glass but are not proven to be suitable for use with hot drinks.
